HISTORY

OUR VALUES AND PRINCIPLES ARE REFLECTED IN OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To "Team Up" with other organizations and concerned citizens to maintain abundant, clean water for our continued health, enjoyment and a strong economy.   

 Itasca Water Legacy Partnership (IWLP) is a unique blend of public agencies and private citizens all working towards the same goal.  Those water quality advocates came together in late 2006 to identify and implement a set of activities that would maintain the clean water resources and quality habitat in the six major watersheds of Itasca County.  The group solicited organizational assistance from the Blandin Foundation and, in January of 2009, Itasca Water Legacy Partnership (IWLP) elected its first Board of Directors.  In 2011, IWLP became a 501c3 organization.   

 

Governance

Board of Directors  

IWLP is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors who come from a wide variety of backgrounds.  The full Board meets quarterly and the Executive Committee, consisting of the officers and committee chairs, meets on a monthly basis.  The board consists of both voting and non-voting technical advisors.

IWLP does not have any paid administrative staff and appreciates all of the volunteers who so generously step forward to assist with special projects.
